I noticed the last blog doesn’t have a photo on it. There is a photo on this one. I hope it doesn’t get lost in cyberspace because it is Ethan standing on one of the logs that has been donated for the bridge. We counted 138 logs altogether. We need around 210 I’m told. They are cutting a few extra …. just in case.
Ethan’s Dad (Dustin) is helping me get ready for the reopening of the mill April 1st. Dustin is a teacher and is on Spring Break this week. We have taken the old water wheel apart and have put all the pieces except the axle in Old Mill Barn. We can’t budge the Axle. I’ll have to get a farmer friend to bring over his tractor. We are now cleaning the mill. On the way home in my truck Ethan asked if we could play a CD. I told him I didn’t know because I had never used the stereo. Dustin said it was a tape player not a CD player. So Ethan asked if we could play a tape. Then he looked at me and said “I know grandpa … all you have is Duct Tape”
